    DW-5800 vs DW-5800E?

    Curious about the difference between DW-5800 (Japan) and DW-5800E (Malaysia). Lost out on one on a recent online auction... (not my pic)

    Thanks Ron. I only see reference to the 5800 on the web, never the 5800E. Is the latter a later, less desireable watch? The working, fair-condition watch sold for, with s&h, around US$35. I've seen much higher prices for the 5800 and nada for the 5800E.

    Mint examples of the original dw-5800 are worth $400-$800 depending on who is looking for one at the time. Very rare watch, not many made. One with the original (more rounded) bars is worth more. The original bars can sell for $200 just on their own

    thanks kung-fusion. That's exactly what I see for the 5800 Japan on the web/e-bay. I''m guessing the Malaysian 5800E is not worth as much or is as collectible becuse I never see it referenced. Any comments on the 5800E or the distinction?

    Well it is not one of the steel case screwback Japan made models. I have not heard of it. It may be worth something to the right person but probably nowhere near what a 5800 from 1987 is worth

    I believe that's a DW-5600E (module 1545) in the photo, it just looks like it says 5800 and the seller has described it incorrectly. I've never heard of a 5800E.
